Tried from a poured bottle at Vic on the Park during the Sydney Craft Beer Week opening party.
Pours, yeah, ok, amber-ish in colour, but quite pale and a little weak and light. Very good clarity in the glass, but minimal carbonation to keep it vibrant. Fine head of beige covers the cap. It looks decent enough.
Nose is pretty dull. There's a slight maltiness there, and a slight huskiness that makes it feel slightly German in style. In fact the nose is similar to that slightly grainy maltiness you might expect in a strong German lager, like a Märzen. But it's also just weak and dull, which ruins that illusion.
Taste is similar, but oddly because it's perhaps even more bland than the nose it just helps it be inoffensive and dull. There's a slight creaminess in the taste which is pleasant enough. Otherwise it contains similar characters to the nose. Some weak malt and a faint husky grain note.
Feel is light, and with a surprising hit of aggressive carbonation, which I didn't expect from the appearance.
Overall, though, this isn't great stuff. For a limited release beer, they really haven't looked far beyond the realms of what they usually do: it's a typically Matilda Bay affair.

Pours an amber reddish colour, beige head. Small bubbles and not much retention or lace. Bit pale, pretty pedestrian.
Smells sweet and malty. Mild toastiness, but yeah. Sweet with some residual sugar. Touch of fruit, on the back. Just a whisper. OK.
Taste is a bit weaker. Some sweetness with toast, toffee, some charry notes towards the back without bitterness. Bland, mostly. Some residual sugar and mild hint of some earthy hop. Nothing too special. But OK for the style.
Bit of texture, not much body.
Decent enough red ale, but not a style I love and doesn't show me anything new in the style; just decent.
